Shark teeth


Today there are many species of sharks found in the oceans. The oldest known shark fossils date to over 420 million years ago! Sharks evolved into their modern forms about 150 million years ago during the Jurassic period, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth! Shark teeth are common in the fossil record because each individual shark has a large number of teeth and these teeth are strong enough to hold up over time.
